Who is this Online GDPR Training for?
Each company which collects data and information which could be linked to an individual, whether that be data concerning customers or staff, will be affected by the May 25th 2018 Regulations.
To establish the systems that control the data, large companies must appoint a Data Protection Officer. However, all staff in companies who collect and handle data, must understand the new Regulations and their role in data collection.
This is important new legislation which changes data collection rules for the digital era. Your staff must understand their role and how to react to enquiries which have been completely changed under the new rights. This awareness course is for all staff who handle this sensitive information.
